As mentioned yesterday, the kittens are now TWELVE WEEKS OLD. Here they are on the day they were born and at 4, 8, and 12 weeks.
So grown up!
I weighed the kittens yesterday – you can see the weight chart at the bottom of their page – and the combined weight of the kittens is now 17 1/2 pounds. That’s more than double Caroline’s weight, and a few pounds more than Charles weighs!
Eventually – hopefully – that whole small garden bed will be filled with catnip. Last summer I took some cuttings from the potted catnip we brought with us from Crooked Acres and planted it alongside some catnip plants I’d bought at Lowe’s. Only the catnip rooted from the Crooked Acres plant survived the winter. I don’t remember where that catnip came from, but it’s apparently a hearty strain!
